Facebook Murder Suspect Fatally Shoots Self In Erie County

The search for murder suspect Steve Stephens put authorities in surrounding states on the lookout.

Stephens then fatally shot himself inside the vehicle.

As his vehicle was spinning out of control due to the maneuver, Stephens pulled out a pistol and shot himself in the head.
